A Nun Brought Down the House on Italian Version of 'The Voice'

Trending Now

We are fans of NBC's "The Voice" here at Trending Now. The interplay between Adam Levine and Blake Shelton is great, and they bring in some great talent. But after seeing one performance on Italy's version of the show, we feel as if we're missing out on something. That something is Sister Cristina Scuccia. Yes, sister. She's a nun from the Ursuline Sister of the Holy Family, and she sure can belt it out. On "The Voice of Italy," she performed a passionate, full-throated rendition of Alicia Keys's "No One" that kind of puts even Keys's version to shame.

As Sister Cristina sang , fellow sisters watched and cheered from backstage. All four of the "Voice" judges almost immediately hit their buttons, and when their chairs turned, the looks on their faces were priceless. After all, it's not often that a nun is a contestant on a singing show and — more incredible — that she is so good. Shortly after her performance, the term #suorcristina, or "Sister Cristina" in Italian, was trending on Twitter. One of the show's judges, Italian rapper J-Ax, told the woman, "If I had found you at mass, I would always be in church."

To top it off, when asked what she thought the Vatican might think of her performance, she mentioned that she would like to meet Pope Francis. We really hope there might be a duet in the works.
